Trump wants a Civil War to remain in power

He’s threatening violence from his Kool-Aid drunks.

“You know, the left plays a tougher game, it’s very funny. I actually think that the people on the right are tougher, but they don’t play it tougher. OK? I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump - I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough—until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad. But the left plays it cuter and tougher. Like with all the nonsense that they do in Congress … with all this investigations - that’s all they want to do is - you know, they do things that are nasty. Republicans never played this.

I understand his frustration with the witch hunts but as President he should not be inciting violence.

All indications are that the crazies and racists who supported him will become violent if he is removed forcefully from office. This is one reason why impeachment should not be used to remove him.

Democrats and Republicans who want to see him leave need to focus on the 2020 election.

The president is steadily ramping up his rhetoric, and each time he does, he brings the seemingly impossible one step closer to possibility. He will marshal all the resources he has to stay in office, because it looks increasingly likely he could be indicted by state or federal authorities when he leaves. He has waged war on the rule of law, an independent system of justice, the free press, the separation of powers - any institution of our republic that might check his power. He has never hesitated to sacrifice anyone to save his own skin. What else is he capable of before it's all over?

A rebuke from some Republican senators today on his phony national emergency declaration is a scant reprieve for the republic, particularly when dozens - including those who originally said they'd oppose the declaration - went along with his naked assault on the Constitution. The president declared an emergency that does not exist to seize money not appropriated by Congress, and most Republicans went along with it. He will put this nation to the test, and it increasingly looks like political violence could be part of the equation. Of course, he'll claim he can't imagine why anyone would do such a thing.
